Biostatistics M.S. with Genomics Concentration

The MS in biostatistics with a concentration in genomics builds on the master’s curriculum with additional classes and practical experience in genomic data analysis.

Coursework covers recent developments in sequencing techniques, biostatistical methods in genomics data analysis, and data mining/machine learning. Research in those areas yields an enormous amount of data that require statisticians and bioinformaticians to rethink analytical strategies. 

Students will work with several genomics specialists during the program.

Admission Requirements

Admission and exam requirements are identical to that of the M.S. program. Applicants often have a biology or basic health sciences background, though it is not required.

Priority is given to applications received by May 15 prior to the fall semester of enrollment.

Degree Requirements

In addition to the M.S. degree requirements, the genomics concentration requires out-of-track electives in biochemistry, molecular biology or genetics.
